AN EVANGELICAL DISCOVERS THE CATHOLIC APOSTLE PAUL - THURSDAY, MAY 10, 7:30 PM AT KOLBE ACADEMY-TRINITY PREP
For many people, St. Paul is a curious figure. Often he is seen as Protestant, with his teaching on justification by faith, the “priesthood of all believers”, and his conflict with St. Peter. Former Protestant, theology teacher, and St Apollinaris parishioner Mark Brumley explains how he came to see Paul's teaching as fundamentally Catholic. He explores key elements of St. Paul’s writings often overlooked and how St. Paul can help bring Catholics and Protestants closer together. Presentation is free and open to the public. Thursday, May 10, 7:30 PM, 2055 Redwood Rd.
